the administration so long with john mccain and lindsay graham issuing this statement. we recognize that al-qaeda involvement in the terrorist attack that killed four americans is an inconvenient truth for a president that claims to be destroying al-qaeda. but it's not too much to ask why the administration has taken so long to state what appeared obvious on what really happened on september 11th, 2012. we're a back with our panel. so given all that we've learned in the last couple of weeks. how big a security failure was that attack on the consulate? >> it was far bigger than this administration is willing to admit. we knew the security situation in benghazi was getting out of control. there were attack on the british consulate which was closed and there with a attacks on convoy and attacks on the u.s. consulate, too. there were reports out of benghazi. u.s. issued a statement in august warning americans not to travel there, telling them there is probably bombings and a assassinations. >> paul: we also know that they called for the revenge against the united states for a killing by a terro
mccain, lindsey graham saying we don't want defense cuts going into place. maybe we can talk about taxes. why? because they're going to do a tiny little trick with attaches and president obama has already said he's going to cut corporate taxes from 35% to 28%. in the end where are they going to get the money? from social security. now even david koch of koch industries is saying: >> why? because he's going to trick you. hey, here's a little tax increase wink wink. now give me your social security money. that is a deal i am not interested in. finally, david axelrod when asked about the social security deal had this interesting response. >> mark, i'll tell you what, when you get elected to the united states senate and sit at that table we'll have -- this is not the time. we're not going to have that discussion right now. >> why doesn't he want to have that discussion about social security wouldn't it be the easiest thick for a politician to say under no circumstances will we cut social security. 84% of americans agree with that. if you're a progressive democratic you say of course never cu
recently, john mccain seemed to moffett on the leadership side before he even got to the debate by being willing to or suggesting the debate be canceled or postponed so they could stay in washington and work on the bailout project. that made him look and l unleaderly and did not seem to be able to handle multiple problems at once. for me, and i think this will be important this particular year, our candidates, office of problems. no one doubts obama can relate to the people, that he is likable and can balance or do the democratic party. what we're wondering is what is the leader of the park since we have a four-year pattern that did not make as much change as we had hoped. mitt romney of course is known as take charge ceo leader, but his big challenge will be showing he is democratic, and like the rest of us, -- >> democratic with little lead. >> he has to overcome that. challenging for both. >> you can arm wrestle. you are closer to the microphone. >> i think one of the issues this year because it was one of the few growth industries in the united states, the legion of fact checkers wi
. and i remember in the 1990s once asking john mccain, is it possible? and he actually asked the question, is it possible to run for president and be true to yourself? he ran for president, and a lot of people would say he wasn't true to himself. i asked him a couple of months ago, what's the answer to that question? and he said, "i don't know." the average person watching these debates is looking for straight talk and authenticity, not what's going to happen in some other state or their state. what they're looking for is a projection that is of the true self, the true candidate. >> yep. the truth. chuck todd, give us a sense of your takeaway of the national polls. >> reporter: well, what you see is -- >> right track/wrong track and the trends we're seeing in this poll. >> reporter: internally, when you look at everything of the poll other than the head-to-head, you sit there and say, wow, mitt romney's got problems. the right track is moving, 57% say the economy is recovering. highest right track we've had in 3 1/2 years. the president's job rating sitting at 49%. among registered voters
, but it's a swing state when you have,ou know guys running like mitt romney and john mccain and bob dole. a tough conservative wins florida. >> what was the impact of that ad -- i couldn't believe when he picked ryan, the democrats ran an ad of some guy whoooke yaus granny off the edge of a cliff in a wheelchair. it was subtle. >> it was subtle but that doesn't work because marco rubio got elected by promising. the one big date that he had with charlie cristndhe deatppt, talked about raising social security to 70. bob graham, one of the most popular democratic politicians in florida history, always talked about the need of possly raising the retirement age for social security and medicare. therhe are a lot smarter than politicians think. so no, it wasn't that good. let's talk some more about ike because, again, i think the guy is slowly evolving into my favorite president. talk abo- you say he's a war hero whoated war. and i guess ike, after korea, u.s. serviceman wasn't killed? >> yeah, i think one or two were, but the point is, he did not commit u.s. troops to combat. >>veeight year >>
